Claymont is a 350-acre retreat center nestled in the Shenandoah Valley of West Virginia. We’re located just 50 minutes from Dulles Airport, just outside of Washington, DC. Our country lanes, fresh water springs, and winding paths create a tranquil setting for study, relaxation and contemplation. We welcome many diverse groups to our Mansion and Great Barn facilities. We hope your group will join us soon.
The Claymont Court Mansion is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The Mansion is a picturesque and protected environment for seminars, conferences, workshops, or retreats. Up to 36 participants can be accommodated overnight in the Mansion. The simply furnished library, music room, and ballroom provide a variety of meeting rooms, ranging from smaller, intimate spaces to larger rooms suitable for group activities.
The Great Barn provides a less formal setting and can accommodate up to 80 people in private and shared rooms. The Great Barn has a large dining hall and an expansive meeting room with maple flooring, as well as several rooms designed for meetings of smaller groups. The 9000 square foot octagonal hall at the east end represents a unique venue for dance, martial arts, meditation, and a meeting space that can accommodate large groups.
Taken together, the Mansion and Great Barn can house larger seminars of around 100. Up to 150 people can be accommodated with overnight camping, or on a daytime basis.
